I only stitch on days that end in "y".

Happy dancing!

I finished my model for Diane Williams and it's safely in her hands.  It was a joy to stitch and I'm sure you Little House fans will love it.

I'd signed up for Lynda's Traveling Pattern and LHN's The Busy Needle arrived just as I was finishing the model.  It was great timing for a quick "stitch" and I really enjoyed stitching this one.

You can visit Linda's blog here:  .  Thanks for loaning me your pattern, Lynda.  It's on its way to the next stitcher.

I also got to do a little stitching on LHN's Family Sampler.  (Are you seeing a theme?  I'm such a LHN fan!)  I changed the color of the house to resemble our house we built in MI.  I sure do miss that house!  I chose this design to participate in a Remembrance SAL and in memory of my maternal Grandma who was all about family.  Although she wasn't a cross stitcher, she was a talented seamstress, quilter, and crocheter and was ALL about family so I thought this would be a nice one to remind me of her.

No proms, concerts, etc. this weekend but DS's marching band boot camp will be on Monday (I'm a band aide for that) and a band concert Tuesday night.  We're approaching the frenetic end-of-the-year final push of activities.  DS finished his last every TAKS test of his HS career.  WOO HOO for him!  I'm hoping to clean windows and blinds this weekend with DH's help.  Doesn't that sound fun?

Everyone have a great week!
